Don’t we all want a hug when we are sad? When we are going through a bad situation, don’t we need a hug, and for someone to tell us ‘everything will be ok’? As human being this is a natural need we have. It is good to talk about what we are going through to someone else. It helps to talk, and it helps that someone talks back and gives words of sympathy, of encouragement. If you ever feel that there is no one to express your distress to, think again. Our Father Above is always awaiting for us to come knocking at his door.
But what if we don’t want to talk about how we are feeling? Does that mean we are on a road to Depression? Should we seek Mental Health? What if we do want to confide in someone, but we just don’t want to hear those sympathetic words, that pity in others voice. We do not want the physical contact that they want to offer. “No hugs, no patting, or holding your hand’. Why are some so afraid to embrace what every human needs? Comfort in the time of sadness, or tragedy. Is it because we are angry, or is it simply because we know our inner self will breakdown if we speak of our sadness?
Is it bad to want to deal with you problems on your own? Is it bad to keep it to yourself? Is it strange to not want that comfort from a family or friend? We all feel alone and sad sometimes, but is it wrong, or bad, to not want to confess your sadness with others? I believe if we confess it all to Our Heavenly Father, then we are on the road to recovery. Yes it is always good to have someone to speak with, but turning to God should always be out first choice.
